Phone the apple help line (which i do believe is UK:08708760753) and give your personal details and serial number which should be on the bottom of the laptop and they should unblock it for you.

open your laptop safely, inside of your laptop look for its BIOS battery on its motherboard then remove it and put it back and try to switch it on. good luck!!!.

Please tell me how to unblock our facebook site in office,our it person has blocked the site so want to view the site


If your IT person has blocked your access to Facebook you will not be able to un-block it unless you know the Administrator password. There is no way to "hack" the access without that password.

I forget username and passowrd in my MAC OS X Version 10.4.11,please findout the solution to restore my username and password.....


Did you lost the administrator password? There is a way to reset it. You will need the install disk in the resetting process. Please make sure you follow the steps accordingly.

From Mac OS knowledgebase:

Resetting the original administrator account password Follow these steps to reset a password when there is only one administrator account on the computer, or if the original administrator account needs a password reset. "Original" administrator account refers to the one that was created immediately after installing Mac OS X. If the original administrator password is known, that administrator account may be used to reset the passwords of other administrator accounts using the steps described above.
  1. Start up from a Mac OS X Install disc (one whose version is closest to the version of Mac OS X installed). Usually, you can start from the disc by putting it in your computer, restarting, and holding the C key. Or, put it in the computer and click the Install or Restore icon you see in the disc's main window (after which the computer will start from the disc without you needing to hold C). Or, you can use Startup Manager or the Startup Disk preference pane to select the Install disc.
  2. Choose a language, click the arrow button to continue, then choose Reset Password from the Utilities menu (or from the Installer menu, if using Mac OS X 10.3.9 or earlier). Tip: If you don't see this menu or menu choice, you're probably not started from the CD yet.

    Note
    : The default keyboard layout is U.S. English while started from the installation disc. If you use a keyboard layout other than U.S English, use the Input menu (the flag icon on the right side of the menu bar) to select the desired layout before typing a new password.
  3. Select your Mac OS X hard disk volume.
  4. Select the user name of your original administrator account.

    Important: Do not select "System Administrator (root)". This is actually the root user. You should not confuse it with a normal administrator account.

  5. Enter a new password.
  6. Click Save.

I bought mac book used and i cant update or install anything cause i dont no administrator password


If you received an OS X install disk with your used MacBook you can change the administrator password.
1: Boot with the OS X install DVD by restarting the computer with the C key held down. You may release it when the Apple logo appears.
2: When you get to the install menu, select your language
3: Select Reset Password under the utilities menu on the menu bar.
4: When the password pane come up, click on your Hard Drive Icon,
5: Select the original administrator's user name (capitalization counts)
6: Enter a new password for this administrator account (capitalization counts).
7: Re-enter the new password to confirm.
8: WRITE IT DOWN SOMEWHERE!
9: Provide a password hint.
10: Click save.
11: Make sure you reset the home directory permissions and ACLs by clicking the reset button.
12: Reboot your Mac.
If you don't have an install disk, you will have to buy or borrow one.
